[add to Goodreads]
Summary: I’m pushing aside the memory of my nightmare, pushing aside thoughts of Alex, pushing aside thoughts of Hana and my old school, push, push, push, like Raven taught me to do.The old life is dead.But the old Lena is dead too.I buried her.I left her beyond a fence,behind a wall of smoke and flame.Lauren Oliver delivers an electrifying follow-up to her acclaimed New York Times bestseller, Delirium. This riveting, brilliant novel crackles with the fire of fierce defiance, forbidden romance, and the sparks of a revolution about to ignite.
My Favorite Line: “You can’t tell me how to feel.”
Why I Loved It: Lauren Oliver quickly became one of my favorite authors after Delirium. The book tore me up completely at the end. I would think about it a couple of days later and start tearing up again. Pandemonium started out just how I needed it to. I healed as Lena healed. Bit by bit, I became more and more happy with the way things were going. I’m going to do my best to review without giving anything away.
Life was good for me, and sadly the book began to come to an end. I was already mourning only having a few pages left. And then that last page came. And I stared at it unable to wrap my mind around what had just happened. And then it hit me. And then I stared some more in a shocked stupor. Finally the tears came. I kept going through the different scenarios Ms. Oliver could have ended with that would not have tore me up so much. I just have to trust in her fabulousness and that she knows what she’s doing. All I have to say is the next book cannot come out soon enough. I will definitely have to read Delirium and Pandemonium again before then.
